If they won't listen to the EPA, I'm sure an F/A 18 equipped with an anti-ship missile could stop BP applying the dispersants. It will be interesting when a class 5 hurricane picks up all that brown goop and rains it down on 60 percent of the U.S. Maybe that's the administration's plan to "save" the midterm election. Millions of dead people can't vote (for Republicans).

You give Obama too much credit John, he has no plan but to agitate (Alinsky Rules for Radicals).

One thing we all do know is that within days of it happening, 13 countrys offered to send everything they got to help us out, and all the "Wizzered of O-Bama Oz" could say is Naw, we got it covered..................Nothing more needs to be said.

Its 911 all over again. I hope its not the NK Mini Sub, but it looks just like the crap we all heared back then all over again. Letting the people walk right into danger knowing many will die.

Evan if it was the mini sub, BP deserves what they got for everything they were doin before it happened. "Rappeing the Planet" ......................"Rappeing the People" !

BP Official Admits to Damage BENEATH THE SEA FLOOR
Jun 14, 2010 at 4:09 PM | Unregistered CommenterTexas Dar

Hydrogen Sulfide, Benzene, Methylene Chloride, and other toxic gases — pose a greater risk to human health than the presence of oil washing up on Gulf of Mexico beaches.

Oh DB, It just gets better but once again............................ from ."The Heritage Foundation" <morningbell@heritage.org>

An Offer BP Couldn't Refuse

On October 13, 2008, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson summoned the CEOs of the nation's largest banks into a gilded conference room at the Treasury Department just a stone's throw away from the White House. Each CEO was then handed a one-page document that said their company would agree to sell hundreds of billions worth of equity to the federal government through the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). "We plan to announce the program tomorrow – and that your nine firms will be the initial participants." In case anyone missed the subtle message, Paulson added, "We don’t believe it is tenable to opt out, because doing so would leave you vulnerable and exposed." Sure enough, just like a certain fictional band land leader once did, all nine CEOs signed their respective contracts.

Yesterday, history repeated itself. This time it was the executives of BP who were summoned directly to the White House to have a little chat with the President and Attorney General Eric Holder (who has threatened BP with criminal prosecution). The exact conversation may never be known, and by the end of their "no-nonsense business meeting" BP emerged from the Roosevelt Room to announce that they would "voluntarily" place $20 billion into an escrow account to begin covering claims associated with the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster and contribute another $100 million to a foundation that will support oil workers made unemployed by President Barack Obama's indefinite ban on offshore oil drilling.

Don't buy for a second any of the mainstream media's line about this being good for BP. The White House made clear yesterday that the $20 billion was just a down payment and in no way represented a cap on BP's liability. In fact, the President explicitly said that the fund would not preclude individuals or states from pressing claims in court, and that it would remain separate from BP’s liability for the damages to the environment. And these damages may include the costs of cleanup for damage far beyond what BP caused. The Washington Post today reports that a gulf restoration plan of the sort promised by President Obama could cost as much as $30 billion. That's $50 billion in damages so far. And that does not include any future money, on top of the existing $100 million donation, the White House may press BP to pay to cover the unemployment caused by President Obama's offshore drilling ban.

Yes, BP did get the White House to say they do not want to see BP driven into bankruptcy. But who does that promise really serve? Clinton administration Deputy Attorney General turned BP lawyer Jamie Gorelick explains: "We know what it looks like when a company is driven into bankruptcy. The claims that come first are the creditors, then the employees, then the environmental claims, and then the likes of shrimpers. This would not be a good result for anyone." Now look at how the deal between the White House and BP is structured. BP is not handing over a $20 billion novelty check tomorrow. Instead they are set to pay $3 billion in the third quarter of this year, $2 billion in the fourth, and then $1.25 billion per quarter thereafter. In the meantime, BP has identified $20 billion worth of assets in the United States that the federal government now has a lien on. In the event of a bankruptcy, guess who gets to jump in line and have their claims honored first? Still guessing? Then ask Chrysler's secured creditors.

Yesterday's "voluntary" deal between BP and the Obama administration was nothing less than a continuation of President Barack Obama's ongoing assault on the rule of law. Capitalism only succeeds if it is a profit and LOSS system. Well-managed firms should have every right to keep their profits, but mismanaged firms must be allowed to suffer losses. By all accounts of what transpired on the Deepwater Horizon, BP is a terribly mismanaged firm. If the damage they caused is great enough, they should be allowed to fail. Failure is a necessary component of capitalism. But this administration refuses to allow the rule of law to work. From Fannie Mae to Freddie Mac, from GM to Chrysler, from AIG to Citibank, our government continues to subvert the established rule of law. This lawlessness creates uncertainty in the business environment, and it is a huge reason why our economy is not recovering as it should be.

Last night on CNN former Clinton Administration message man James Carville said: "It looks as if President Obama applied a little old-school Chicago persuasion to the oil executives." Making "offers you can’t refuse" may be a great way to run the mob, but it is no way to run a country.

"It's TARP all over again. Yesterday, BP announced that it would "voluntarily" place $20 billion into a government-administered fund to compensate victims of the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster and clean up the mess. The oil company also agreed to shell out another $100 million to a foundation that will support oil workers made unemployed by President Barack Obama's indefinite ban on offshore oil drilling."

TARP was about "us" bailing out the poor innocent banks responsible for this mess, this is about BRITISH PETROLEUM paying for what they f@cked up. Without this, when BP files bankruptcy, the victims will be standing with their dicks in their hands, behind the creditors and everyone else who can stake claim, thereby receiving nothing. Even without this, Victims receive something (though way less than appropriate), tax breaks on loss, unemployment, other Goobermint services, etc., tax revenues, BP, as a foreign entity should pay for the destruction to American taxpaying lives, not to mention the wildlife, otherwise it will all be on our backs.

Joe Bartons 'I Apologize' statement was clearly about serving foreign masters proudly verses serving the U.S. taxpaying constituents. When they filed for permits to drill, statements were made that they could handle any contingencies, that was a lie. Furthermore they cut corner after corner to the point that even the employees were speaking up in fear for their safety.

This could end up being an extinction event, and will ultimately end up on the backs of American children anyway, so maybe everyone should just suck the BRITISH now, that will make it better.

I do not give a f@ck about Brits, Chinese, or anyone else who serves a foreign flag, what would our first President do? Anyone with a Goobermint indoctrination will be looking up George Washington now, but he was the eighth President.

John Hanson ( first to serve full term) would throw out all who serve a foreign flag, Joe Barton has already accepted the pound of flesh...

This is just in from a close friend on mine. So the Obama media works its magic once again. But in all fairness, this is real where the oil has come a shore. Obama is milking this for.........................."Green" We all knew he would.

Where they say is oil, thAre Aint. Where thAre is oil, the Feds. wont let the people clean it up. Hummmmm, somethin-fishy goin on here...?

We never know what to believe but a good story is needed by reporters.

Interesting eye witness view here....

From a senior captain with PHI (Petroleum Helicopters Inc.) Just thought you might be interested.

Hello All, I have received several emails from friends and family asking about the oil spill. I had managed to avoid getting involved until last hitch. i came home last night from a 10 day hitch flying for BP from their base at Houma, La. They have 56 aircraft working the oil spill. I worked the Venice, La and the Grand Isle area where the president likes to visit. The news people have blown everything out of proportion and lots of untruths. The report that no one was cleaning up Grand Isle beach for one, Yesterday there were 200-300 men on the beach cleaning up what little oil was there.
I have been flying the Coast Guard around checking the bird sanctuaries. They are protected by booms that prevent oil getting on the small islands in the area. The famous pelican that was on all they news channells was on Queen Bess Island. it is the size of about two city blocks and had one spot of oil about 10 feet long. The stupid pelican decided to land in this spot. There are more there more than 10,000 birds nesting on this island and he is the only one with oil. Some area to the east are worse but not as bad as made out. The oil for the most part is still offshore. it will come onshore some time but BP is fighting with more than 300 boats cleaning and putting out booms. There are probably 50 million birds in southern Louisiana and 53 comfirmed dead, Not the thousands as reported.
I Know it will get worse but it irritates me at the news medias slanting of the news.
I noticed that when Obama came to town, he waved his arms but nothing improved. I guess he lost his magic touch.
I just wanted to pass along an eyewitness report., I dont know where I will be next hitch, but we are short senior Captains so probably back to the spill. If so I will update my report later.

Becouse I got that from the people next door that live in S Texas in the winter and have friends who work for PHI. The media is only doing what they do best, scare us.

All the oil under the water im sure is there. All the oil moving east of the platform and comming to shore. But the south tip of La. the news wants us to think everything is almost dead, AINT, just yeat. They would need a SE Wind to blow it that far west, and thats not normal.

Yes its bad where it is comming to shore. Sad, BHO wont let it be cleaned up by the people and is stalling, Why You Would Ask...............................

OK, whAre do ya's want me to start.......................from my "In-Sider Guy.....................

BP screwed the city of Cleveland over long before this Dar. We used to be the corporate home of Standard Oil of Ohio (SOHIO) Remember those gas stations? Well, BP slowly bought out Standard Ohio. Sohio built a brend new corporate headquarters building for themselves here in Cleveland in the late 70's/early 80's, and employed about 2000+ workers here in the city of Cleveland. Cleveland was on a great comeback except when BP got enough money to buy out the controlling interest of SOHIO. Guess what happened? They shut down the national headquarters here in Cleveland and the 50 some story brand new office building. Now it is less than 30% occupied. Most of the jobs went back to mother england, the rest went to their new American Headquarters in Chicago because they just bought out ARCO! (Atlantic Richfield), which they also severely downsized. Now there is only one American owned oil company left and it is still here in Ohio. Marathon Oil is it my friend! Every other company is non american. Why has our government allowed this rip off to happen?? Payoffs payoffs payoffs to the Left wing democrat controlled Congress all of those years when this happened. The President doesn't control this, Congress and the Senate are the controlling entity and they were Democrat from before 1970 til 1992.
Cleveland is sinking into Lake Erie because the government has allowed the Steel Mills to go offshore, the Banks are now owned by entities called "The Royal Bank of Scotland" The Bank of Britain" and others like the Bank of Hong Kong which the Brits still own. The government owns our auto manufacturers and people are buying off shore cars because ours pretty much have sucked! Ford seems to be on a comeback! YEAH!!! Why are we letting companies from other countries control our resources, and a president who was now born in this country to hold that office!????

You dont need to know if my info is true, the info speaks for its self. Shit is starting to fall apart. Evan Hillery Cliton, cant save us now, evan with guns a blasin, and bullets flying over own heads.

Her Pant-Suit cand send the oil back out to sea, nor can her Crap save us. God for Bid, we should have to eat Shit from "Billery"..............................
